Wise InstallBuilder MS Access Driver on WinNT Problem

I am trying to create an install suite that will install our software together with a version of the MS Access ODBC Driver.  The install must work on Win98/WinNT/2000/XP.  So far, by using Wise Installbuilder 8.14 I can easily create an install that works on 98/2000 & XP; WinNT is the problem.  I am simply using the standard Database Runtime components option, with MDAC 2.6 selected.  I have also selected the 32-bit MS Access Driver.  When installed on WinNT I get the error message, "Unable to load odbctl32.dll".  I have tried fooling Installbuilder into installing MDAC 2.1/2.5/2.6 and 2.8 but get the same error message each time.  Every time I try a new install it is on a fresh copy of WinNT4 SP6a with Ie 5.5.

Any help would be gratefully received as I have already spent a long time on this.......

You are not the first.
To be done with it, go to SageKey and get their script for Wise:

I agree with Gary's suggestion. The Jet service pack will probably solve your troubles. I'd include the correct file (note there are different installs for different platforms) for NT and install that. I use Wise Installer 9.02 and I can differentiate between target OSs; I'm sure you can as well, thus you could ONLY install the service pack for NT machines (although it wouldn't be a bad idea to update ALL machines to Jet SP8, you'd have to include a couple of files which would, of course, bloat your install). Of course, you could built two (or more) installs specific to the platforms, but I don't know if you want to go to that trouble.
